1. Embellished Sunglasses

If you’re looking to turn more than a few heads, you couldn’t go wrong with picking up a pair of embellished sunglasses. The decorating possibilities are endless here, with the most popular items added to the sunglasses being flowers, crystals, glitter, and everything in between.

2. Aviators

These sunglasses are true classics. Year in, year out, they never fail to make their appearance o the runways. They never really stagnate though, and this summer’s array of aviators have evolved some changes here and there to make them more impressive and eye-catching, both in men’s and women’s collections. Keep a lookout for colored lenses and frames, marble frames, double rims, and ombré shades to keep ahead of the pack.

3. Geometric Funk

Diversifying the sunglass portfolio will often mean pushing the boundaries a little bit, and you see this in one of the hottest trends this season; the funky geometric styled sunglasses gracing the runways. You’ll be able to get your hands on any number of out-of-the-box shapes like pentagons, double triangles, and anything else a mathematician could come up with for an undeniably chic, mature, and utterly fun-loving look.

4. Colorful Lenses

These are a sure bet for those among us who aren’t really looking for dark or clear lenses. The great thing about them is the endless possibilities for matching your eyewear with your clothing or other accessories such a shoes and handbags. You’ll always find something to compliment your outfit perfectly.

5. Ombré Sunglasses

The best of both worlds is right here. These distinctive sunglasses give us the perfect combination of dark and light shades and have been high on the list of trendy eyewear for numerous consecutive seasons. They will always stand out from the crowd, and their appeal doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon.

6. The Oversized

For an impressive number of seasons running, no listing of summer sunglass trends has been complete without the Oversize taking a place of honor in the line-up. 2017 is no different. As a matter of fact, these bad boys remain so popular with the fashion world that there is no ending in sight for their strong runway and street presence. If you’ve got yours from last season, rock on! Chances are, you’ll be strutting your stuff in the oversize for a few more seasons to come.

7. Perfect Circles

With all the jaw-dropping, wow-eliciting designs electrifying runways all over Paris and Milan, a rather welcome dose of restraint comes along in the form of the perfectly round sunglasses for those looking to make their statement using their indoor voice. Whether double or single rimmed, dark shaded or light, there’s something for you in 2017.
